Today was our last full day at the build site. We started a new job digging the foundation for a home in San Juan of la Maguana. Our job consisted of digging 3' holes and shoveling out the dirt. It typically takes the locals here about three days to complete this portion of building a home.

We had great weather with lots of sunshine, which made our work even more grueling. Lots of sun screen, water and taking breaks helped to keep the team motivated. We ended our work day cooling off with Bon Ice Cream. This truly is a team tradition.

Tonight we will enjoy dinner at the local Mexican restaurant El Espia. Tomorrow is our last day here in San Juan of la Maguana. Saying goodbye to the community will be bittersweet, but we feel so blessed to have served them all for His glory.
